So we lost power last night.
+ whenever I am in a situation without power, I’m amazed at how long it takes me to realize plugins + light switches don’t work.
Let me explain:
One time I lost power [it was during a crazy snow storm we had a few years back in March.] I’m Norwegian + I am addicted to coffee. Only problem? Coffee maker needs electricity.
Enter my Bialetti moka pot I have from when I studied in Italy.
Being the genius [sarcasm, people.] I am, I realized that I could use our gas stove, if I started it with a match.
I’m so winning at this point.
Then I realized I didn’t have any ground coffee. Whole bean was all I had, since our coffee maker has a burr grinder built in. Yes, I am lazy.
At this point I am so not winning anymore.
But I remembered a small coffee grinder I had packed away in a cupboard. It took me a while to find it.
I dusted it off.
Set it on the counter.
…. + I plugged it in.
Oh wait, then I couldn’t figure out why it wouldn’t work. Yup. True story.
Annnnnd a pretty dumb story.
So anyway. We lost power, + I was sort of bummed when it came back on. I’m so behind on sleep, I knew that no power = forced early bed time!
That being said, get ready for a cute overload from a playdate we had this week with the stunning Miss Kyndal, Kaiser + Porter. Harlow has a mega crush on both of them. I mean, I heard you can love 2 guys at once, at least that’s what they say on the Bachelorette, right? I kid. I kid.
We’re still rocking the solid tw0-naps-a-day gig, so middle of the day is when we are out. Bright sun calls for Harlow’s awesome ruffle hat from her Auntie Heather!
Kaiser showing us his bubble skills!
I still can’t believe she’ll be 14 months old tomorrow. It’s going way. too. fast.
We had so much fun playing on the playground with those Braly boys! + I always love time to chat with Kyndal! You’ll be able to find this family in a dark room sobbing when next July comes along … not sure what we’ll do when the Bralys leave for hot-lanta!
So in case you missed it, yesterday I showed y’all the fixins‘ I received in my StitchFix box! Sign up for yourself + share with your friends: I’m seriously hooked. Email or comment with any questions! + no, I’m not getting paid to say any of that.
Also? I’m so excited about next week!! We are getting on a jet plane to head to one of my most favorite-est places in the world.
[Don't worry. I have awesome neighbors with security cameras, dogs that are taller than me, and eyes in the back of their heads. Right Jeff? Y'all are watching the house while we're gone, right?]
I thought about doing guest posts from some of my favorites, and I will do that sometime soon, but I don’t want our time as a family to be forgotten – also? I know that this year’s speakers are going to be fantabulous: so I want to share what I’m learning with y’all!
The posts won’t be fancy. + I’ll probably miss a day or two + have to catch up, but I can’t wait to share with you all a place that I call home, at least one week per summer for almost 23 years now.
Yup. It is that amazing.
Does your family have a place that has become a second home? Or maybe is a second home?
Where are you traveling to this summer??
Happy Friday y’all! Can’t wait to read about your latest summering fun!
